I just came across this, its a bit strange and pretty funny :angel:

In Finder, Under the Shared section. I have a Home-PC share, I went into Get Info.

The preview picture that comes up is a PC monitor with a BSOD lol thats pricless.

Indeed, thats been in most editions of OSX for quite some time now. Kind of an in-joke among Apple engineers. Good to see a sense of humour in our favourite tech company.

It'd kind of old news... Almost hilarious when it first came out, but slowly faded...
Still a nice talking point though =]

Can you zoom in and see it? You know the old, hold "Command + Scroll-Wheel trick". At least that is what I think it is...

It's just the generic BSOD text; and it can be enlarged by opening coverflow easy enough

I'm a bit surprised that Microsoft hasn't done anything in retaliation. Just the shear use of the Windows name is a violation but doing this and in such a way there are grounds for legal action.

And what would M$ do? A iMac pic with a Kernel Panic on? ;)
On my MacBook, it didn't happened since I updated it from 10.5.2 to 10.5.3, about 10 months ago. On my "ex" 3-years -old PC (recently changed ALL the hardware inside & switched from AMD to Intel. Only the case & power are genuine), I had some on its 2 weeks long AMD Hackintosh life.
I will not tell you the amount of BSODs I had on my ex PC-laptop running Vista, but 2 in a day was waaay too much.

Well, for the iMac showing a KP, maybe in 7 final release or in Midori?
